How to install jpg filters for ART2k using WISE?
Posted on 2004-09-13
The Access2000.mde works percfectly on a PC that has Office installed.
Then it was compiled for installation using Sagekey for WISE, and the
Setup.exe was created. This installs both the Access 2000 RT, and the mde,
to the target PC, along with the database icon.
When installed in a PC that has MS Office 2000 installed, everything
compiles and works OK. But when installed in a PC without MS Office 2000,
the images don't show up.
It uses unbound image frames that get their "x:\directory\myimage.jpg"
from a textbox, that has a text field in the underlying table. This textbox
has a lookup routine to the directoriesin the PC, and the text does show.
I gather the filters for jpg need to be included in the installation. I dont
have the faintest idea of how to code this. or which files to include, and
how to register these files so they waork with the Access 2000 RT.
I have thought of creating a separate executable for this tas and running it
as part of the installation routine.
I have searched the internet but cannot figure out how to incorporate some
of the solutions there. (For example "A2KLoadJpegGifVer33GDiPlus" would
not do since I would have to reprogram too many forms.) This is just a wild
guess, but I would need to do something similar to installing some type of
picture viewer that would allow the jpg to function in Access.
What are the filters handle jpg as images?
How can I make sure they register correctly?
